Event Details:

The Banpo Bridge is a major bridge in downtown of Seoul over the Han River, South Korea, connecting the Seocho and Yongsan districts. The Banpo Bridge is on top of Jamsu Bridge, forming a "double deck" bridge. When the water level rises too high, the Jamsu Bridge becomes flooded with water and is closed. The lower deck incorporates pedestrian and bicycle paths that provide easy access to the Banpo Hangang Park from the north side of the river. The Moonlight Rainbow Fountain is the world's longest bridge fountain that set a Guinness World Record with nearly 10,000 LED nozzles that run along both sides that is 1,140m long, shooting out 190 tons of water per minute. IIK get-together was arranged on one of the days when Moonlight Rainbow Fountain was played. Around 80-100 IIKians gathered for an amazing evening to see the beautiful view of Moonlight Rainbow Fountain. Many of them even brought potluck dinner and had dinner at the venue.
